Grow Your Own Salad Initiative
The British Leafy Salads Association has launched a new Grow Your Own Salads initiative for primary schools aimed at children aged 7-11.
The initiative is designed to help children develop first-hand knowledge of where their food comes from in their own classrooms. Teachers can apply for free Grow Your Own Salads kits and download curriculum based teaching resources, developed in conjunction with us at the British Nutrition Foundation. The resources include eight pupil friendly worksheets along with whiteboard activities. The resources can be downloaded from the website www.makemoreofsalad.com and applications for the kits can be made online, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01189 475956. Kits will be delivered in September 2012 designed to be grown in the classroom during the autumn term.
